Default Lookin' to buy new front and rear bumpers. Where should I buy from?

So I am new to the whole "upgrading my truck" and all that good stuff. I have chrome bumpers and I want them to be all black. So I have been told that you can not paint chrome bumpers so I need to buy new ones, and heard that aftermarkets are pretty cheap. Anyone bought new bumpers online? If so, where?!

The chrome can be stripped off by a media blaster then the bare metal primed and painted.

As for a source for new stock bumpers, dealer is about it as far as I know.

Take it to someone to do it. Chrome is an environmental hazard and should be removed properly.

Personally, I'd check with the body shop you plan to have do the painting. They'll probably do it as part of the deal.

Excellent idea. I wonder what the cost would be?

Cost estimate here in Boise at a local body shop was around 1k for both bumpers. That included removing them, dechroming, painting, and install.
